2016 Dry River Syrah Martinborough

SKU #1563028 96 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Dense, concentrated yet supple red with floral, violet, black pepper, plum, dark berry and smoky, chocolate, mocha oak flavours. A powerful, age-worthy wine that can be appreciated now but will certainly reward anyone with the patience to hold it for another 5-10 years. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark There’s something about Martinborough Syrah... when it’s good it can contend with Hawke’s Bay – and the world. This wine is truly delicious: inky, dark and wonderfully aromatic, with the pepper and herb mix close in style to Hawke’s Bay, along with a plush, juicy, black and blue fruit palate with wonderful freshness and length. This comes from one of Martinborough's most renowned vineyards, over the road from Ata Rangi. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Already throwing out considerable sediment, the 2016 Lovat Vineyard Syrah became a vibrant purple hue in the glass. Violets and cracked pepper make for an enticing nose, and that's backed by blueberries and blackberries on the palate. It's medium-bodied but intense, with just-ripe tannins and bright acids that give the wine a precise, elegant feel and lengthy finish. One of two great Syrahs from Martinborough (the other being Kusuda's), it should drink well for a decade or more. Inner quote mark (4/2020)
